The article acceptance processes and publication processes applied in the International Journal of 3D Printing Technologies and Digital Industry are the basis for the development and distribution of information in an impartial and respected manner. The processes implemented in this direction are directly reflected in the quality of the work of the authors and the institutions that support the authors. It is important that all stakeholders (authors, readers, researchers, publisher, reviewers and editors) comply with the standards for ethical principles. In the acceptance of the articles, the criteria of being original, likely to be cited and complying with academic principles are taken into consideration. No fee is charged from the authors during the article application and publication processes. Scientific, ethical and legal responsibilities of the articles to be published with DOI records belong to their authors.

If it is determined that the author(s) of the article used falsified and fabricated data, this situation is reported to the institution where the authors work, and the article is rejected.
The management of the International Journal of 3D Printing Technologies and Digital Industry (Pre-Inspection Board-Editorial Board and editor) switches to text reviews on plagiarism through ithenticate(R) and after other scientific audits. Articles with an upper limit of similarity rate of 20% (excluding References) and articles with a similarity rate exceeding 20% will not be evaluated.

The editorial group of the International Journal of 3D Printing Technologies and Digital Industry expects all its stakeholders to bear the specified ethical responsibilities and obligations within the scope of publication ethics. While establishing the ethical duties and responsibilities and obligations, the guidelines and policies published by the Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE) (https://publicationethics.org/resources/code-conduct) and Higher Education Institutions Scientific Research and Publication Ethics Directive, Interuniversity Board It has been prepared taking into account the Scientific Research and Publication Ethics Directive.

The Editorial Board of the journal handles all appeal and complaint cases within the scope of the COPE guidelines. In such cases, authors should contact the publishing office directly regarding their objections and complaints. When necessary, an ombudsman may be appointed to resolve cases that cannot be resolved internally. The Editor-in-Chief is the final authority in the decision-making process for all appeals and complaints.

In scientific studies containing the following issues, documents showing the permission of the ethics committee should be submitted to the journal and necessary information should be given in the article;
• All kinds of research studies carried out with quantitative or qualitative approaches such as interview techniques, experiment, focus group work, questionnaire, observation and interview, where data is collected from the participants.
• The use of humans and animals, including materials and data, for experimental or other scientific purposes
• Clinical studies in humans
• Studies involving animal experiments
• Retrospective studies in accordance with the personal data protection law.

In addition to these, information regarding the signing of the informed consent/consent document in case reports should be included in the article. For the use of content such as photographs, scales and surveys that do not belong to the authors of the article, the permission of the owners of these content should be obtained and stated in the article. In case of use of intellectual and artistic works, complying with the copyright regulations is obligatory.


For Authors;
The author or authors who submit an article to the International Journal of 3D Printing Technologies and Digital Industry are expected to comply with the ethical responsibilities and obligations stated:
• The work of the author or authors is to be original and in the case of the author or authors benefit from other works or use other works, to cite and/or quote completely and accurately is required,
• Situations and relationships that may constitute a conflict of interest, if any, of all studies submitted for publication should be disclosed.
